    So first Corker lies, then he doubles down on the lie....hmm any bets that VW might decide that they don't want to do business where liars are in office? But guess what, we'll hear that it was all because of the UAW and has nothing to do with the lying liar, Corker.
    UAW should have no say in any of this.

    Since when has UAW invested in a business, and took the risks associated? -- No No, UAW are the rats and cockroaches that follow after the business has been built looking for anything they can get their hands on..

    I want UAW abolished..

    Of course you do. And the UAW doesn't have a say in where VW will build the SUV. It has been by VW proven to be a hysterical lie from Corker who is very anti-union and is trying to use VW as his scapegoat for frightening his citizens into believing that if they rejoin the union, they'll have no jobs. Since VW is pro-union (of a sort), they seem to want their employees to know that a union isn't a deal breaker and that Corker is a liar.

    UAW, are a bunch of mobster ****s that use gangster tactics, which they learned considering the close ties they had with the Italian/Sicilian mafia....

    As a Sicilian myself it makes me sick how this thuggery has become status quo.

    Every state should be a right to work state, and if unions can make their organizations more attractive to potential employees than so be it, but that's not how unions handle their business - you either join their union thug gang or get buried.

    It makes me sick to know that my ancestors were involved in promoting this criminal nonsense.

    Bingo! You hit the lotto. I found this of interest.

    What’s fascinating about the VW vote is that the company is quite open to a German style works council, which would be organized under the auspices of the UAW. Many of the workers are in favor of it, too. But local politicians like Senators Corker and Watson, as well as conservative activists from Grover Norquist to the Koch brothers, are putting up a fight. They see the VW battle as a key victory in the battle to unionize the South. While Southern states have low union penetration, the South is also where the action is, and organizers like the UAW’s Region 8 director Gary Casteel, who’s in charge of Southern unionizing, have been making good progress there.

    I have no problem with unionization as long as it isn't a requirement to work there. Let the workers vote and either go with it or not. But those who do not want to join, they shouldn't have to. It should be an individual worker choice.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Seems to me the company wants to work with the unions under a model used in a Germany. The only thing that is acting like a cockroach is Norquist and his ilk.

    Of course it bothers you, but the corruption of CEOs and the 1%-10% doesn't bother you at all, right? Please... corruption is an issue at all levels of business and government and most of it is then legalized after it's cost the 90% their jobs, their incomes, and their livelihooods.

    We all know that whether it's because you part of the 10% or whether it's because you're one of the ignorant one's who still think opportunities are available for everyone to become part of the 10%, you favor the lower classes having an unreasonable level of daily and financial struggle for the benefit of the few at the top. I think we all know that about you and have for quite a while.

    Unions are a criminal organization cloaked in "legitimate business."

    The purpose of the unions are to extort as much as possible while the big heads line their pockets and make sizable campaign contributions to any politician that will offer "their guys" a contract, weather a job needs to be done or not.

    Unions are dirty, corrupt, bad for business and bad for the economy.

    Your opinions about unions has no bearing on this situation, but thanks for sharing.
    The company wants a relationship with the American union much like how they have relationships with unions in Germany.
